Samsung shows off a new phablet

Samsung has pulled the wraps off a new smartphone in its Galaxy family called the Galaxy Grand. The smartphone runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and has a large five-inch display. This is another phone from Samsung that skirts the gap between the traditional smartphone and a tablet.

The Grand also has a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, integrated GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, integrated Wi-Fi, 8 GB of user accessible memory, and a microSD card slot supporting up to 64 GB cards for expansion. The phone has an integrated accelerometer, digital compass, proximity sensor, and Gyro. The phone operates on common HSPA+/EDGE/GPRS networks.

 

The phone is loaded with the latest version of Samsung Hubs, which delivers popular games movies and music on demand. The phone will be offered in two versions including a dual-SIM version that launches first, followed by a single-SIM version later. The dual-SIM version of the smartphone allows users to manage two phone numbers with a single phone.

Pricing and availability are unknown at this time.

Sorry, because my hand isn't too small to operate a 5 inch phone with one hand makes me a fool? I mean, I get it people want a smaller phone, and if that is what works best for you then by all means, go for it. I was just saying why the majority of people want a bigger screen and why it has become the norm.

It would be nice if somebody made a dialer app that wasn't full screen and sat centered at the bottom of the screen. Make the dialer say the same size it would be on a 4" screen.
